I’ve lost 4 pounds in the last 4 weeks. Its watching the carbs and exercise. The biggest surprise is how much I love weight lifting all of a sudden. With DXCC, the goal was to make the count go up, with weight loss, the count goes down. I ride my bike to and from BART to work in SF, I lift weights and do yoga.
I’m a goal oriented person, and while retiring from DXCC left me feeling a bit “stateless”, this new healthy program has me in a similar mindset as when I was chasing DXCC. Once you get in your 50’s, you need to boost your metabolism – and I had read that weight lifting is a great way to stoke the metabolism fires. I sure can validate that!
